What people are saying about Heraklion Regional Unit

Great day, on time, clean, great guide. Of course much too short to experience the two cities sufficiently, but 10 hours are not enough for that either. Many Thanks

We enjoyed the day very much. Our tour guide Rannia was very knowledgeable. Good bus and comfortable transportation and well worth the money. Recommend.

Great tour and great food. Very happy I did this tour just always wish there was more time at each location.

Chania and Rethymno were charming, but 2 hours were enough to see the most important local sights.

This visit is really worth it and allows you to see the essentials. Well calculated time
